Default Is it bad to sleep often?

I usually turn my pc on every morning. I work at it for about an hour at a time then I'm off of ot for a few more hours, then on it again. Should I put it to sleep everytime I'm done? Or should I let it run constantly? I just wanted to know if it's bad for a computer to sleep often. thanks

i put my to sleep if i know i will be back at it within a few hours. now if i leave for work, an 8 hour shift...then i shut it down. my rule of thumb is, if you won't use it for more then 5 hours...then shut it down, otherwise just put it to sleep

When I'm at home my computer is usually switched on in the morning and I'll do odd things here and there. When I go away, for maybe 2 or 3 hours .. even more, I'll just turn the screen off and leave the computer running ... I should probably let it sleep though. I would usually only turn it off at night time, before I go to bed.
